Toronto Common is excited to announce our second Rare Bottle Series; a guided Napa Cabernet Tasting at Montecito restaurant with General Manager, and certified sommelier, Heather McDougall. 

Heather has worked for boutique wine retailers, teaches, mentors, hosts guided and casual tastings, is a buyer for private and corporate clients, and has been Wine Director and General Manager at some of Toronto's top restaurants including Splendido, The Chase, and Luckee.

A rare opportunity to try wines not available locally as many have been brought in specifically for this event. She has in depth knowledge of Napa Valley and has personally selected a series of Cabernet Sauvignons from 2000 to 2014 for this event to take us through the modern history of Napa Valley with bottles ranging from $200-$450 per bottle.

A pairing of cheese and charcuterie will be offered with this 6 wine tasting and the event will be held in their private dinning room on the second level of the restaurant. 

Due to the nature of this event, there is a set guest requirement of 10 people or tickets will be refunded and additional tickets cannot be added. 


Montecito Restaurant is a modern restaurant collaboration between Hollywood director Ivan Reitman and Toronto-based Innov8 Hospitality. The vision for Montecito has been from the beginning to create an environment that captivates a wide audience and brings them together in an exceptional space. 

The restaurants’ Farm-To-Table inspired California cuisine menu changes weekly and highlights the very best in Canadian produce, meats, and seafood from both local purveyors as well as notable Canadian suppliers from coast to coast.  Their bar features classic as well as craft cocktails using the finest in artisan spirits, mixers and seasonal fruits and vegetables. And their comprehensive wine list highlights producers and artisan winemakers from afar.
